Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

Answer the question.
Is religious discrimination a 'civil liberty' or a 'social right'? The religious right believes it's both...as long as their religion gets to do the discriminating...

How about owning guns?'Civil Liberty', or 'Social Right'?

And which of the two might exercising one's bodily autonomy be?

Just checking.

Confronted With Facts, O'Reilly Screams "Bullshit"
Guest Accurately Identified Specific Cuts Obama Supports
Fox News host Bill O'Reilly broke down and screamed at his guest Alan Colmes for identifying spending cuts that President Obama has proposed, shouting at Colmes, "That's bullshit!" and repeatedly claiming Obama hasn't proposed specific cuts to replace the across-the-board cuts known as the sequester. But Colmes was correct: Obama has proposed cuts to Medicare and Medicaid as part of his plan to replace the sequester.
During the March 5 broadcast of The O'Reilly Factor, O'Reilly repeatedly claimed that Obama "refuses" to endorse specific spending cuts, shouting at Colmes, "Give me one damn program he said he'd cut!" even as Colmes highlighted Medicare and Medicaid as two programs Obama has proposed cutting: VIDEO

I watched that segment.

O'Reilly was not confronted with facts and by no means broke down.

Colmbes was asked if he could cite one example where Obama attempted to cut spending since he has been in office and Colmes just started the typical liberal bullshit spin - NO FACTS.

Colmes could not cite one example, because there is none.

You are simply passing on propoganda from Media Matters, who is a known attack dog spin machine, moron.

You are a liar and an idiot, but everyone here already knows that.

O'Reilly was right on, azzwipe.

no. Democrats are smart enough not to make fools of themselves by whining about the POTUS breaking their promise to their constituents/cronies to get them a pass to see the hated one in the WH.
kind of odd that Republicans have a thing about WH tours. i bet if i check they've helped more folks get a pass then they ever did while Bush was in Office.

The sequester is a "meat cleaver approach" to budget cuts, according to the president, instead of sensible planning and leadership on his part.
Am I correct?
For the umpteenth time., NO.

You are Not correct. You are wrong.

Those meat clever cuts were passed by Congress. They failed to compromise & make a deal.

Canceled White House tours, not projected job losses, cause uproar

The Congressional Budget Office tells lawmakers sequestration would cost the U.S. economy 750,000 jobs, and it doesn't stop Republicans from calling the sequester a "victory." Congress is told the policy will hurt military readiness, and most of the GOP shrugs its shoulders. Republicans are told the sequester will hurt low income families who rely on WIC and Head Start, and GOP officials look the other way.

But told that President Obama is halting White House tours, Republican lawmakers respond, "He did what?"

The congressional GOP may want to revisit its list of priorities.

Aren't you getting tired of playing this game of having these showdowns every two or three months? The Republicans met Obama halfway in January and he wants to raise taxes again.
Tell me one thing Obama has proposed to cut in the budget.
Impenetrable bubble? President Obama has already cut spending by about $1.5 trillion, which is a lot more than Republican policymakers cut during the Bush/Cheney when all they did was put new expenses on the national credit card. He has also offered hundreds of billions of dollars in additional cuts, as part of a bipartisan compromise, which the GOP refuses to consider.

Are you prepared to condemn Senate Republican obstructionism, which is preventing the Senate from doing its work?

Weekly Address: Averting the Sequester and Finding a Balanced Approach to Deficit Reduction

Now, my preference – and the preference of many Members of Congress – is to do that in a balanced, comprehensive way, by making sensible changes to entitlement programs and reforming our tax code.

You wear stupidity like a Badge of Honor!!

After spending the entire Presidential campaign hammering Obama for 'cutting'$700 BILLION from Medicare, you come back now and say he won't cut anything??

You are either insane or bi-polar.

Either way, your double talk amounts to bupkis.

You sound as whacked out as O'Pervert did last night when Allen Colmes made him look the angry idiot he is.

I'm sure you must be referring to CNN and CNBC getting a freakin grip. It was they, not I, who published this information.

You posted it.

" OMG OMG that fricken Obama & those GD Democrats did this & they did that" When in reality your post was misleading.

The worse part is you will ignore this & keep posting the same crap over & over.

My God, you right whiners have a new catch phrase. You do realize that Republicans are the ones pushing fewer civil liberties for some of our citizenship as they fight against Gay Marriage & look to limit abortions & use photo ID laws to deny the right to vote.
